Dude, this is ridiculous. Why the hell wouldn't rivets hold it together... They hold together PANTS for crying out loud.

Pop rivets will hold it together, what are you talking about? Have you ever used a rivet gun( you most likely have, king gort, 'wimper') Just use the big rivets. looky: http://www.bylerrivet.com/

Why would you want to make a box out of pvc anyway? Sure it would look cool but there are better things to make boxes out of.

I could make a box out of metal amd wood but I havent made one out of PVC before. And I know how to use rivets, I ment to just put ifI was makeing the box was ok to heat it up and flatten it out.

I would solvent weld it instead of riveting it. Especially if you plan on using pop rivets, chances are the rivets will crack the PVC.

Be careful heating it too much, you may damage it. I agree with schmanman aluminium would be a lot better in most respects.

Demon, if you want to criticise people's spelling and grammar, make sure you can get it right first, please. So long as it's legible it doesn't really matter.
